Base: Sketch Paper
Made Using
:Graphite Pencil
: This is a Rajasthani Woman, whom I have tried to portray in Graphite Pencil. I had her photograph as a reference. Rajasthani woman and that too villager are very shy. As you can see, she is holding her pallu in her hand to cover her face. I loved her facial expression and gave an attempt as a graphite sketch! I hope you all will like it! :)

    Thanks so much for your compliments. I appreciate them. I love your Rajestani woman. You captured the shiness. I have recently learned about that part of India. My husband and I have been learning about your fascinating country. Keep up the good work. Silvia

    Such a change from the whimsical couple riding the camel! That is a fun, light-hearted picture, with the happy people and their strutting camel. And this drawing portrays such a different feeling; a few simple lines say so much.
